    why couldn't ya? guys are guys

    Ever been to a straight bar? It's just a bunch of guys drinkin and having a good time while looking for pussy...

    Ever been to a gay bar? same as above expcept insert dick (no pun intended :winkicon_smile.gif inplace of pussy.

    The rest is just a "man's" personal approach on how to engage, interpert and succeed in life, career, sports, entertainment, stress, hate, love and has nothing to do with his sexual inclinations.

    Mee too. Straight guys can take a joke, or rank, a lot better than many gay guys. And since there is no sexual tension, the laughs run easier, the dialogues are less complicated and the comunication is easier.

    Straight guysallow themselves to get pissed.......they express it and get over it. Sometimes I've had intense conflicts with a straight guy, but hours later everything is fine.........even kicking back and having a beer together.

    Contrast that with some gay men who never raise their voice (since THAT would be considered unPC) or who always simply get bitchy, defensive and hurt all the time instead of going with the flow....or the stiff, uber "straight acting" "butch" gay guy who is unable to crack a smile or let his hair down because he's trying so hard to be a "bear" or masculine......PULEEEZ!

    Guys are guys.............

    I agree with the concept that men are men, regardless of sexual orientation. When gay guys ask me for advice about relationships, I often restate the problem in terms of what a straight man & woman would do. The answer is usually the same.

    Men are men. We let our dicks do our thinking for us a lot of the time, whether gay or straight. I may not be able to understand a straight man's interest in a pair of big tits, but I can understand his interest in sticking his dick in a hole. What hole he chooses is about the only real difference between a gay and a straight guy.

    Most of my friends (or at least half) are straight. We're all attracted to what we are attracted to............skirts & tits - or (much better!) chests, abs, bulges, asses, thighs, legs, good looking feet - - - -you get where I'm going here!

    Absolutely. Straight guys are easy to figure out.

    That said, I've never bagged a straight guy. Oh well.

    Gay guys are much harder to figure out, mostly because through a repressed upbringing they don't generally seem to be connected to their true selves.

    Your results may vary.

    Straight / bi guys have MUCH LESS DRAMA, than gay guys. This is especially true with ATHLETES. Almost without exception, athletes are secure in who they are, irregardless of their sexuality.

    Gay folks, for whatever reasons, tend to sexualize, and fetishize, so much around them. It's so very sickening. Gay non-jocks are often just a mess. A few gay jocks are a mess, but, that generally hasn't been my experience.

    I think this gets down to self-esteem. Athletes learn it early on. In a competition there's a very public loser and winner: instant rejection, or instant praise. Athletes, regardless of sexual preference, learn early on about how not to be so self-focused, and not to sweat the small shit. Lots of gay folks have such fragile egos...it's pretty pathetic. My life is to short to have to coddle those folks. I give them a dose of truth, and move on.

    No issues understanding them. I raised one, all my brothers are straight, and I have straight male friends. I also came from the "straight world" being married once. I do agree with Chuckystud that they do tend to have better self esteem (in general). They also tend, when pissed, to blow up one minute, then be cool with you the next. That's the one thing that drives me insane about my gay friends. They love to harbor issues. It's almost like they thrive on it. Now that's also a generalization among my friends as a few of them, maybe 25%, remind me of straight guys. And those are the ones I tend to be closest too. The other "acquaintances" I can share some laughs with if we're out in a large group, but wouldn't hang out with them one-on-one.

    I don't think an interest in sports is a heterosexually exclusive trait

    if anything i don't think they understand me....No can you move your stuff so I can get mine, is not gay speak for I wanna ass rape you, actually curiously enough that particular phrase translates to mean exactly the same thing as it dose in hetro

    Yes. I am their Queen.

    The straight has one friend other then the straight-girl-he-hasn't-slept-with-(yet) friend who can not only tell them how to dress, where to eat, what to listen to, what to read, and how to cook, but also give personal advice and a deeper insight to Women. Or at least that was my experience due to the fact that I was the Highschool football/soccer/geek/wrestling/accadecca/track/etc... personal shrink and matchmaker - Thus, I am their Queen.

    I'm surprised that most of you said it's easy to understand them ..

    I do understand them most of the times .. but their sexual views are wierd and sometimes I can't really deeply understand them or feel identified with them although we have the same tools ..

    Is this assuming that gays are independent of their sex?

    Of course we can understand heterosexuals; they're human beings and so are we! Whether or not we can identify with their feelings or experiences is another story altogether. lol.
